The Elephantom has moved into the West End. Magical entertainment for young and old, The Elephantom is a wonderfully inventive mix of puppetry, movement, dance, music — and theatrical ingenuity. This adaptation of Collins’ picture book about the little girl who is unexpectedly visited by a big blue elephant, is the perfect summer treat for all the family.

It was the Elephantom Press opening of the show’s West-end transfer today. A great time was had by all, (Even some celebs) much excitement by young and old when the star of the show ‘Trunky’ showed his head. If you look closely at the photo of Damian Lewis, you can spot me and Becky just hanging out!
